Theatre movies and acts are not so easy to perform as it seems to, there are endless efforts put behind each individual in a theatre act who all together put their efforts and make the performances successful.
There are endless workers involved who are not given the credits as they deserve, many of us don’t even know their existence.
Among these one of the most important pillar is a Callboy. Right how weird it sounds isn’t it? Or maybe for the first time you might be hearing it?
This is so because these characters are never introduced or given the attention they deserve to get.
The condition of the stage at the time of performance is very crowded and the actors are in the green room waiting for their chances to come and perform, there’s a person called call boy who plays an important role during the whole play.
The call boy alters the actors when will their chance come and when will the enter and when to perform. Not only in theatre performances but also in fashion shows, it is the call boy who alerts everyone about when to enter and the precautions to be taken.
Call boy may not be given the credits but he is really important, as the scene that happens is very crowded, during the shows and performances, the crowd, the noise, the excitement of the actors, among them one of the pillar is required to be alert and make everyone alert about their performances.
Without a callboy, a performance cannot run, and the show will turn into disaster, because if someone does not warn you about your part obviously it will ruin the whole show.
Just as call boys are not recognised and the important work they do there are several men involved while doing the performance. The lack of credits make these people feel inferior and in honour of respect they must be given credits.
